“Many entrants were capable of seeing ideas beyond what most other people might notice, and

that makes the judging process so refreshing in an age where everyone thinks they are a

photographer,” judge Anthony McKee said.

The competition was created by Australian Photography and Capture magazines, with the People’s Choice Award open for selection here.
